Mag Releases Rehab Top-10 List
All five US facilities on Healthcare Global's list are covered by The Fix's Rehab Review—but not always with a similar rating.
Healthcare Global magazine’s June issue lists the top 10 drug and alcohol treatment centers around the world—and six of those 10, including all five US rehabs on the list, have been reviewed by The Fix as part of its innovative, unique-in-the-industry Rehab Review. The six Fix-reviewed rehabs that made Healthcare Global’s top 10 list are Passages Malibu; Promises Malibu; the Betty Ford Center, in Rancho Mirage, Calif.; The Meadows, in Wickenburg, Ariz.; Sober Living by the Sea, in Newport Beach, Calif.; and Crossroads Centre, on the British Caribbean island of Antigua. But The Fix's reviewers—real, live former residents of each treatment facility—came to some differing conclusions from Healthcare Global on these facilities. Passages, No. 1 on Healthcare Global's list, was awarded only two stars by our insiders—same as Sober Living by the Sea—while Crossroads, Promises and The Meadows received four stars, and Betty Ford three.

Global treatment facilities featured on the top 10 list that have not yet been reviewed by The Fix are the UK’s Priory Group and PROMIS Rehabilitation Clinic, Australia’s The Sanctuary Byron Bay and Spain’s Serenity House. Describing the criteria used to determine the list, Healthcare Global Editor & Content Director Abbie Smith tells The Fix, “I really looked for rehab hospitals and clinics that offered something different and unique; whether it was the location that made them stand out, the reasons behind their formation or the type of treatments that they offer. I think all the clinics featured in the top 10 really are the best in the world, and provide patients with the highest level of treatment, privacy, rehabilitation and support in their ongoing journey to recovery.” To learn more about about any of the US rehabs (or Crossroads Centre) on Healthcare Global’s list, visit The Fix’s Rehab Review—or, if you're looking for treatment for you or someone else, call The Fix’s Rehab Helpline on 1-888-438-3493 to talk about finding a good treatment fit.
